Ninkasi Sleighr Dark Double Alt Ale

26 Dec

ninkasi sleighr

Christmas beer.  The name is synonymous with brown, malty ales usually spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon or something similar and this year was no different for the most part, except a few breweries tweaked some older recipes to give Christmas more of a hop-balance.  Ninkasi Sleighr Dar Double Alt ($2.87) is one example of just such a beer.  Full of flavor, smooth, crisp and with a high alcohol content, Sleighr is the perfect beer staying in from the cold and eating a Christmas dinner, below is info from Ninkasi.
